Integrating simulation centre for teaching in Master University students into the family guidance course
Resumen: This paper describes an experience and results after integrating Simulation Centre scenario into a Family Guidance Course, that was implemented for 19 students during the first semester of an academic year (2016-2017).
This course belongs to the Official Masters Degree in Psychological and Educative Intervention, and trains professionals who wish to specialize in family diagnoses.
Current research was used to guide the design and implementation of the course. Several key points from the literature were applied to the process: linking scenarios with didactic information, the importance of debriefing. All participants received the same classroom lectures, skill demonstration and the case method.
Students' data were collected after using the Scenario.
Finally we present principles for the enhancement of experiential learning in higher education and suggest how experiential learning can be applied throughout the educational environment by courses.
